This book is a good introduction to Gurdjieff's teachings, presented in a clear and understandable way by the author, who was a student of Gurdjieff himself from 1915 to 1924. In this book he tells us how he met his teacher (who was simply a seeker who had heard multiple theories and studied with several teachers in the East) and how he became his disciple.In these pages you will learn the way of the fakir, the monk, and the yogi, and, with a little luck, something about your own impermanent "I.

Once this is achieved, what need will there be to protect the species and habitats from which these molecules came? Subatomic particles, radiation (the craze to label every new thing a "this ray" and "that ray") and relativity were cutting edge science at the time and seemed to open up a previously unsuspected invisible realm.His teachings sidestepped the symbols and mysticism of ancient esoteric initiation systems, in favor of a direct approach that could perhaps be described as cosmic-atomic psychology.
